I'm Going To Be a Grandma!

Back in January I learned that my youngest son is making me a grandma, but they were keeping it under wraps for a bit, and I couldn't share. They are now sharing with everyone so I get to share now too....Grandbaby #1 is due September 16!

But wait, what is this...?

My Easter gift from my oldest son was the news that he is making me a grandma as well! Grandbaby #2 is due November 25...two grandbabies in one year!

I am one happy Grandma-to-be!

Grandchildren are the crown of the elderly, and the glory of children is their parents.
Proverbs 17:6 CEB

French Stripe Dishcloth

Last Wednesday we got MORE ice and snow but, thankfully, not as much as the previous two ice storms. It was enough to keep UPS and the mail from running out here, but no more damage to our home, or the area, and the power never went out...YaY! And now we are finally getting a relief from the winter weather! Double YaY!

I was sick this weekend, so I was forced to stay home. It's funny how you can get inspiration from even the yuckiest of things. I was feeling restless and decided to draw. I call this "Feeling a Little Green" because, well, I was feeling a little green. ;0)

I finished another dishcloth and was finally able to get it soaked in vinegar water to set the red and got a pic of it to share. 

The pattern is French Stripe Dishcloth by Megan Delorme
found on Ravelry here.

This was a very simple pattern, and just perfect to do when riding in the car or watching a movie/show. I changed the striping up just a bit because I was afraid that I was going to run out of red if I didn't use more of the other colors than what she did in the original pattern. I really like how it turned out. :)

Right now I am working on creating a new pattern to share with you. I just finished the first run of it. I have a few tweaks to make and then I will work it up again and post it here. Keep a lookout! 

In the meantime, stay safe and warm and be blessed!

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
Ephesians 1:7
